Tatiana Suarez to make her comeback vs Rose Namajunas following weight-class change

Tatiana Suarez was one of the biggest prospects of the Straw weight division after racking up an impressive 8 fight winning streak. Unfortunately for the Californian, a severe neck injury left her unable to compete since 2019. Now she has teased a potential comeback with a high-voltage match against Rose Namajunas.

Tatiana defeated bigshot fighters like Alexa Grasso, Carla Esparza, and Nina Nunes on her impressive rise. Rose also has picked up wins against Zhang Weili (Twice), Jessica Andrade, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, Michelle Gomez, Paige VanZant, and Angela Hill. If the two prodigies were to fight, some fans would probably rejoice.

Rose unfortunately has not been having the best time inside the octagon. Her last performance against Carla Esparza led to one of the worst fights in UFC history. Both fighters seemed unwilling to engage and the fight went in favor of Carla by a low margin. Later ‘Thug’ challenged Gillian Robertson on Fury Pro Grappling and lost in a pathetic 65 seconds time.

Manon Fiorot is currently getting to welcome the former champion in the flyweight division. Tatiana Suarez is also looking to leave the straw weight division behind and move over to flyweight. However if she does get a big name like Namjunas, the Californian is ready to fight in either division.

What did Tatiana Suarez say?

Tatiana Suarez was recently approached by ‘The Schmo’ for an interview where she talked about her comeback and future plans, “I’ll just ask for another fight 115 after this fight. I know I will because I’ll be lower in weight because I just got done fighting. I’m not that big. I’m not going to be cutting a lot of weight for 125 so it will be easy to stay down. I’ll be smaller. I’ll go through this fight camp so I’ll get leaner.”

She further added, “I think I heard that Rose is maybe going up … I wouldn’t mind making that my next fight at 125. If I’m being honest, I would love that fight … I think I can beat her. My grappling is so superior to her grappling. I think I would make it a nightmare for her, in either weight class.”

Currently Valentina Shevchenko is the Flyweight queen, but fighters like Rose and Tatiana can give her a run for her money.
